on this pig. >> look closer at the energy sector. it was the worse performer with energy stocks ending lower for the sixth straight session. the move lower comes despite a rise in more than 2% on crude oil this week. david? david: as was just said, it's not all red. there is some green on this markets, and it's focusing on retailers. barnes & noble, macy's, zales. people buying diamond rings and bracelets. >> oh, i wouldn't know, david. i'm not a realist, apparently. david: only one woman on my diamond list, but go ahead. >> a look overseas at japan, last trading day of the year, shares closing, get this, at the highest level since last year's tsunami for the year gaining 23%, the biggest percentage rise since 2005. ending on a nice positive note over there. david: wish it was good here. congressional leaders meeting with the president, what's hanging on the edge of the cliff is higher taxes on dividends. coming up, the chairman and ceo of southern company owning a bunch of power companies in the south tells us why the tax hike would be a huge blow to his industry, a blow everybody will feel
energy. 4 million in tax credits for two and three real electric vehicles something tells me this is not an effort to get act of card in every garaged. maybe a segue. is anyone uses anymore? seriously, the money is for plug-in motorbikes. credits were extended for energy-efficient appliances. by a diesel and renewable diesel. there is a $59 million credit for algae growers. tax credits to encourage the production of cellulose biofuel. you know what, it's good when they came plexor industry. then there is tax-exempt financing for what is called the new york liberty zone, the area around the world trade center. goldman, ceo white blank fein says thank you very much for the special benefits. i guess that makes up for the smaller bonus pool. the list goes on and on, and there is a railroad operators, 2,202,000,000. unbelievable. here we are flirting with greek style public finances, and congress continues to line the pockets of their friends and family. i don't know about you, but there is some old acquaintances i would like to forget. coming up, more fiscal fallout from the fisc
. boom. they are preserved. pretty good, right? there's more. and this one is for you renewable energy enthusists out there. the production tax credit has been extended for a whole year. that's a big deal and other kinds of renewables like biofuels, energy efficient homes also got funded as well as research for renewables which again is something that clean energy advocates have been pushing for. those things are what democrats got. what did the republicans get? well, not a whole lot. the debt ceiling was not resolved, so i suppose they got the ability to be able to still argue for cuts for the debt ceiling. so we'll put the debt ceiling in their camp, because they can still hold the country hostage that way, and they also defeated -- you remember that president obama had asked for $50 billion for an infrastructure bank in his first ask? infrastructure bank. and they also got that taken off of the table. so essentially that's a win. they got that taken away. by the way the infrastructure bank would have been a great thing for this country. so we didn't get absolute
of a glorious past. and some parts of the city bustle with holiday energy. but not far away: closed-up storefronts. and, further below the surface, this: a health clinic set up by the greek branch of the international aid group, doctors of the world to serve the country's newly poor. dr. nikitis kanakis is its director. >> brown: kanakis group, in fact, had to cut back some of its work in africa because of the needs at home. here in perama, unemployment tops 50% as the shrinking economy has crippled much of the local shipping industry. at the same time, the deeply indebted greek government has made dramatic budget cuts, including to health benefits. the combination has left many here without access to private or public care. and that's meant a stunning rise in disease and mortality rates. >> brown: economists, of course, speak of a different kind of necessary medicine: the kind a deeply indebted nation must take. the price for living and consuming well beyond its means for far too long. >> the medicine is necessary. it was, though, delivered very abruptly. >> brown: as a government
? >> harris: a lot of energy spent on all this going back and forth. in fact, leading republicans suggesting a great deal of time has been wasted on politics. >> that is precisely right. they note that the house republicans tried to address the issues this summer and voted to extend all of the bush tax cuts and voted on an alternative to the automatic spending cuts that are due to kick in in the new you year and today the top senate republican said why wasn't this addressed months ago? >> we wanted an agreement. but we had no takers. the phone never rang. and so now here we are five days from the new year and we might finally start talking. >> so clearly a lot of blame game back and forth between republican and democrats but perhaps most importantly a white house meeting tomorrow with all of the key players face to face with the president. harris? >> they are talking. now, if we could just get them to talk to each other. the president and senate already returned and now we know house lawmakers due you to come back on sunday. >> there was a quarterback between the house gop leadership and ran
on the mileage stickers on cars. it improves our energy efficiency. that's a good thing. that is spurring growth. but the kind of reforms we have on wall street have not solved the problem. look at what happened last week's at usb, not only wild and irresponsible behavior, but then we have attorney general holder determining that he general holderubs the fullest -- attorney general holders a betty cannot prosecute ubs because he is afraid ubs is too big to shut down and would destroy financial markets. i thought dodd-frank was supposed to fix that. what was so disconcerting was the democrats did not join senator grassley in their u.n outcry about that protect the integrity of financial markets. it is something that should be bipartisan. but it is not, apparently. that is an example of regulation cannot afford. not all it is it is expensive, it's keeping people from getting loans, and it is impeding economic growth, which we need to pay for that column i talked about. host: on twitter -- guest: it is not. it is something people gravitate to because they use a rhetorical device to say there's a wa
the night. the first moves into pennsylvania and weakened and then transfer energy to a system that is going to roll up the coast but that happens too late for this to be a major snowmaker for most of us here. a wide swath of snow from the storm from west virginia into new england. as far as accumulations are concerned one to three inches from columbus and then into pittsburgh and new york city picking up a quick one to three inches through the afternoon when the snow arrives but then boston is where things get interesting as the storm rapidly strengthens off the coast. snow will intensify as we get through the day and then especially the coasts of new england, cape cod into boston we could pick up snow in the 3-6-inch range and then the storm continues to strengthen and drags in north and west temperatures only going to fall. as far as the temperatures right now quite cold across the midwest and thorn plains and we are at 18 currently minneapolis. for tomorrow here. and winter is certainly here and here to stay. that cold air will continue to filter in as we track on past new year's day and

a big big portion of the problem. thank you. host: what energy end of the year energy issues are we looking at here and which ones are likely to get punted down the road? guest: that's a good question. i'm not sure what energy issues -- i'm not aware of any -- host: tax issues? guest: tax issues for the fiscal cliff. but going down the road you definitely have some issues. there's the need for a new highway bill, they've had trouble tasking the highway legislation because no one is willing to increase the gas tax. and our gas taxes are the main ways we pay for new roads and bridges and that kind of thing. so i think that's a relatively short-term problem. and then over the long term, which i've talked about here before, is that given that we're going to need some rev now help solve our future fiscal burden, one of the most sensible places to raise revenue would be through a carbon tax or something similar because that can also help us reorient our energy priorities to cleaner, less damaging greenhouse gases type of energy. host: i want to note that you can go to the c-span fiscal cl

eastern sections of north carolina. as this energy works its way offshore, we'll be watching for the energy to travel from the midwest further off to the coast. chicago, you're getting light snow at this hour. you're getting plenty of snow across western pennsylvania, but i want to zoom into areas in the northeast where we're expecting the snow to accumulate going through much of. evening hours. so we have winter weather advisories across the heartland all the way down through the mountains of virginia, and then you can see, we have four to six inch bes for much of new york state as well as into connecticut and new york. not necessarily new york city getting as hard-hit with this storm. several inches expected. what's fastcinating when talkin about a nor'easter system, as it develops off the coast, depending where the low pressure is centered, that will determine how much snow cities like boston and providence get. but the latest computer modelling are saying we could see six inches or more for the boston area. that's why a winter storm warning is now in place. so the snow wi
for in 2013. harris: there are three you said. what are they? >> housing, energy and huge amount, trillions of dollars sitting on the sidelines by corporate america, waiting to come into the economy once this picture clears up. harris: we're getting housing numbers coming this week already. we're starting to see prices rose a little bit this fall. that is a good sign. we're seeing housing starts have come up as well. so i understand that. energy. >> energy is a game-changer, it really is. we look what is going on around the world. the europeans, far east, they're paying over $17 a btu for natural gas. we get it for $3 in this country. dow chemical just proposed building the largest chemical plant it has in the world here in this country because of the competitive advantage of natural gas. imagine if we could liquify, ship it to europe, ship it to the far east. not only would we have a huge impact on trade balance but actually help the economies out too. game-changer. harris: you mentioned cash on the sidelines. where is that coming from? >> corporate america and consumers, and we saw it thi
want to switch topics. he has also been a big step in of energy policy -- champion of energy policy. discovery of natural gas in your state has changed the economy. where do you think this new discovery of this resource is going to lead us? >> i did it is incredibly positive for the united states. we of gone from 60% foreign energy dependence down to 40%. there are a lot of projections now the we could become energy independent over the next several decades. that would be an incredible boon to this country. instead of sending $400 billion or five order billion dollars abroad every year to buy scarce energy supplies for people who do not particularly like us, we could be spending that at home. think of the difference that will make to the economic strength of united states. think about what it will mean to job opportunities, the economic strength of america. natural gas is a very clean resources compared to many of the other options. our progress . on reducing dependence has also been on grenoble's. -- progress on reducing dependence has also been on renewables. all across north dako

? >> well, i guess the temptation is to say this is going to use up all the energy and fighting spirit of the white house but the president has four years, maybe two, maybe one before the mid terms, one after. i think that there's a legacy situation in play here and so i'm pretty sure that he is going to want to not leave huge debt and there is also a situation where what's good for him is also good in some respects for republicans. so do republicans want immigration reform before the next election? do they want to dig out of the hole they're in with hispanic voters? so there is some mutual interest. i think that gun fight is going to be very difficult but i think that's something that we're going to see, if it doesn't happen this year it may happen the next year or the year after. it is just something that i think the president will want to leave office having achieved. so nothing is going to be easy. we'll have very many brinks, you know, and a lot of fighting over principles which is not a bad thing but i think ultimately a lot of these issues will be addressed. >> david, sequestrat
guys won in this. what does that mean? >> yeah. president obama is a big champion of green energy, wind power, bio and the republicans think it's a waste of taxpayer money because these forms of energy can't compete with coal and gas. well, president obama got big tax breaks for green energy. so he keeps that sector alive indefinitely. >> what about the losers here? the gop wanted spending cuts up front. how do they lose and the president, too in, this? >> yeah. the gop, their message is not resonating anymore. you know, with the younger generation the individualism and small government and low taxes does not resonate. so the gop had to cave and they had to raise taxes on some wealthy people. >> what about small business owners because both sides said hey, we're going to protect these folks. did they win or lose in this? >> most of them won. up to 98% of them will keep low tax rates, but if my math is correct, there are about 700,000 small businesses with up to 500 employees who will pay much higher taxes. so they will suffer. they will not expand. they will not hire. >> as you said, th
? tracy byrnes? the list is said. did you have a stronger dollar against the euro >> energy pricing is losing ground after jumping 3%. we have sandy smith at the chicago mercantile exchange. you told us oil would hit $100. we're on our way. >> we are down with today's session. people stepped in to the oil market because it was struggling. it is still negative for the year at underperforming and crude oil is down a percent and again today the word is he'll like it did deal by the end of the year and those who do as an say it will not be right where it will be bad. we still are not talking about growing jobs so there is negative sentiment crude-oil prices down when typically during of big storm prices would go up but they're dropping because there is fear we will enter a recession and the country will struggle and they say if we enter the new year we will see higher taxes, lower home values in people struggling. it is not a good. they say that's speaker boner will cave in and we will not get a good deal. >> calls it these oil cliffhanger. >> it is rattling explaining why a trading vol

energy field. this is leslie. good morning to you. thanks for join joining us. >> thank you. >> tell us about that program. what's new? what's different about this? >> the idea is fairly simple. if we can get young people in our community the skills and training they need to access well paying jobs we can help them make better choices for themselves as their family. we can lay the foundation for change in our underserved communities. it helps us tide against public safety and social issues. >> so really trying to make people's lives better so they don't turn to bad things. >> exactly. all of our programs are about job readiness and job training. how to we give our young folks, especially a competitive edge in today's environment. we do it by putting them through these programs that give them skills for areas of the economy we know are stable or growing. >> so things like solar energy, technology. >> hazmat training, advanced carpentry, electrical and welding. the nice thing is richmond build has agreements so the graduates into directly into preapprenticeship. one of the things that has
talked last night about energy reform, he talked about gun control, he's talked about immigration. a lot of his political capital is going to be used in the next 60 to 90 days on these budget wars. >> that's right. and these budget wars don't knowsly amount to legacy. here's a president who came in like most presidents thinking about a legacy, thinking about history. of course i think obama care will be part it haof it but i t he's looking at immigration and energy, a lot of thing he's wasn't able to do in the first term, to get them done in the second term. a lot of bad blood there between obama and the republicans but also some bad blood there between obama and the democrats. not a lot of -- i think not a lot of improvement obama has shown over he's last weeks in terms of his relationship with congress. i think that's something he certainly needs to work on if he's looking at legacy, if he's looking at these big ticket items to push them through in his second term. in a couple of months we'll have these big debates around the debt limit but quickly once 2014 comes around, we're going t
